How it works

CDP offers free technical-financial advice for the planning, design and implementation of local public transport works that involve significant investment for the region.
Given the technical/administrative complexity of this type of work (metros, tramways, mobility corridors), CDP offers a consultancy service for public administrations to structure processes and monitor project management, identify the best types of contracts and prepare tender documents.
